What are you doing with your time?
"Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of the time" Ephesians 5:15-16
Our days, as God gives them to us—are like beautiful summer fields.
The hours are like trees with their rich fruit, or vines with their blossoms of purple clusters.
The minutes are like blooming flowers, or stalks of wheat with their golden grains.
Oh the endless, blessed possibilities of our days and hours and minutes—as they come to us from God's hands!
But what did you do with yesterday? How does the little acre of that one day look to you now?
What are you doing with your time? Every moment God gives you, has in it a possibility of beauty or usefulness—as well as something to be accounted for.
Are you using your time for God?
"Show me, O Lord, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life!" Psalm 39:4
Jeremy Taylor: "God has given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends!"
Ryle: "No time is so well spent in every day—as that which we spend upon our knees."
Spurgeon: "Time is short. Eternity is long. It is only reasonable that this short life be lived in the light of eternity!"
"So teach us to number our days—that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Psalm 90:12
